Christmas Hints

Hi Everyone.

Well, now that Halloween is over, I thought I would get a jump start on Christmas! The way I see it, I know Santa is very busy these days. And yes, I could just email him my Christmas Wish List. but, can you imagine how many emails he must get? I know that my email will just be sitting in his inbox with a gazillion other email. And what if he thinks it is just SPAM! No, that just won't do.

Lucky for me I have an "in" with the Mrs. Yup, that's right, the one and only Mrs. Santa Claus is a follower of The Thrifty Groove. Honest! Check it out for yourself. She did have to change her name a little due to trying to keep a low profile in the world of blogging. But you should be able to pick her out.

What? It surprises you that Mrs. Claus is a follower of The Thrifty Groove? Are you kidding? That woman has thousands of mouths to feed. Elves do not live on candy canes alone ya know! Talk about a major couponer! The Mrs. is no slacker in thrifting either!

So, I figured that since she reads this blog I might as well post some of my "Wish List" here.

I was at TJMaxx the other day and saw this end cap with beautiful Blue dishes and I happened to have my camera in my purse (like all good bloggers. LOL) and started snapping shots left and right. Here they are:

  1. Ah-h-h-h such beautiful dishes...I've go to get over to the nearest TJ Maxx!

  2. Diann, here's hoping Mrs. Claus takes the message to Santa and lets him know that you are in love with those blue dishes. I can see why. They are very neat! Great mosaic.

    Happy Blue Monday...


    Sheila :-)
